Pryhawn da pawb, I am doing level 1 lesson 19 and would love to have a listening partner if there is one out there for me! I live in Surrey and don’t know any welsh speakers here. I was born in Cardiff and have my hopes set on conversing in Welsh when I visit. If there is someone out there for me please let me know.
Diolch yn fawr iawn

Hi Paula
I’m on level 2, lesson 6, but am falling behind a bit as I’m working from home and my routine has gone to pieces recently! I did have someone that I was going to work with back in September, but I didn’t manage to get to speak with her unfortunately (more priority shifting!).

If you haven’t found anyone else to practice with, I’d like to offer as I haven’t managed to practice with anyone except a little at work. I live in West Wales but was born in Surrey so have a reverse experience to you!

Let me know if we could work together as I really need to get some speaking practice in. I’ve lived in Ceredigion for 30 years so really should be fluent by now…!

Thanks
Sarah

@sarah-72 I’m just tagging @paula-15 for you just in case she may not have seen your reply (especially as it’s 9 days later).

Shw’mae sarah-72 and paula-15 and others,
I am doing the 6 minutes a day course and have now reached Week 20 which is when we are expected to start talking to a real person. As a result I am also looking for a partner. I was born in Leicester but grew up in Cardiff. I now live in Germany and, thanks to the lockdown, am spending my time mosly at home.

Thanks Alan!

Hi Roger, great! Are you following the South or North version? I need to try and get my head around the slack system - have you recorded any sentences yet? I’ll look back at the lessons where I should have done so and try to get some done today. Perhaps if @paula-15 can also join it would give us more practice? Thanks, Sarah


#231

Hello Sarah,
I’m doing both(!) but with emphasis on the South version which I practise Mo-Fr and I do the North version at the weekend. I also am still fighting the slack system but I did record the set of sentences (I want to, I’m going to … etc.) way back when (on Soundcloud?). Do you have Skype? Thanks for your speedy reply. Roger

Hallo sarah-72, paula-15 and anyone else who is trying to find a listening partner for the weekk 20 challenge. I would like to talk to someone, preferably using Skype as I am still fighting a losing battle with slack (and losing my temper with it too). Anyone interested? Roger


#233

Hi @rogerspencer - just a tip, if you want to draw someone’s attention, if you put an @ before their name (like I did here with yours), they’ll receive a notification (rather than just happen to see your post) :slight_smile:


#234

Hello @siaronjames - thanks a zillion for this great tip. We learn something new every day, don’t we?


#235

Hallo @sarah-72 and @paula-15 I would like to repeat the gist of my recent post and ask if you are still interested in talking for the week 20 challenge - preferably on Skype as I still am trying to use slack. Roger.


#236

  • I haven’t a
    Clue how we do it though do you ? Is it on zoom?
    Thank you
    Paula
